SINGIN' IN THE RAIN
6th - 14th March 2020
Rockdale Town Hall
Set in 1927 Hollywood, a famous silent movie acting pair, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are promoted as the aspirational romantic couple of the decade. But Don couldn’t think of anything worse. Don has worked hard to get where he is today with his former partner Cosmo. When talking films became the new trend, the studio tries to keep up using their two stars but Lina’s voice, whether speaking or singing, is not meant for talking films. Or for talking. Don is not prepared to lose it all. In comes Kathy Seldon, an aspiring actress/singer that Don falls for. She becomes the ‘voice’ behind Lina to save the studio and their careers. But Lina is not happy and is not prepared to share the limelight, or Don. Will Kathy get the credit she deserves?
